We're back for more! The Sharks have advanced to the Western Conference Final and face the St. Louis Blues in Game 1 tonight at SAP Center.
After beating the Avalanche in seven games in the second round, San Jose takes on St. Louis for a rematch of the 2016 Western Conference Final. This marks the sixth postseason meeting between the two clubs, where San Jose holds a 3-2 series record. San Jose has now made the Western Conference Final for the fifth time since the start of the 2003 season and second appearance in the last four years.
The Sharks won in seven games over the Colorado Avalanche after winning 3-2 in Game 7. It marked the first time the Sharks have won multiple Game 7s in a single postseason in franchise history. Brent Burns finished the Second Round series with 10 points (4g, 6a) to become the first defenseman in franchise history to record 10 or more points in a single series and the first NHL blueliner since B. Leetch in 1994. Martin Jones won his third career Game 7 and improved to 3-0.
